: Up to how many billiard balls with a 2 inch diameter can be fit into a ball with inner diameter of 10 inches?
: Can you generalize it? (Diameter of billard ball being M, inner diameter of a
: larger ball being N, where M < N)
: If you tell me how to solve, I will give you a free product.
25, if you're allowed to pulverize the smaller balls into powder!
May I get 1/3 of a viagra pill for that?
Partly generalizing it: 1 only if M > N/2 !
